Brittany Clarke, top, the swim school coordinator for the Saluki Swim Club, teaches a group of children how to swim with paddleboards Tuesday at the Pulliam Hall pool. The swim club is one of many groups that use the facilities. Clarke said she has been swimming at the pool since she was 7 years old. The SIU Board of Trustees announced a $1 million renovation plan for Pulliam Hall that includes removing the pool, but the proposal has yet to be voted on.

Why the baggy-pants ban is a good thing


think it’s this: rules are like fences — and we people put them up not because bad people won’t hop them — but because good people will abide by them and know that they are good. And someone seemed to think that knowing we were being good was a good thing.

With seniors Haley Gorman and Mallory Duran-Sellers leaving at the end of the 2012 season, SIU coach Kerri Blaylock announced Wednesday her first new signee to the softball program for the start of the 2013 season.



A 39-5 defeat of Ole Miss and a first place finish in the annual AllFools tournament, hosted by the team March 31, concluded the year. It was the second year in a row the club had won All-Fools. Pearce, a freshman from Plainsfield studying aviation technologies, said the team performed well all year because of its ability to focus when it mattered most. “When we need to get down to

Michelle Glenn, of Mattoon, signed to Saluki Athletics as the newest addition to the softball team. Glenn attended Land Lake College, a National Junior College Athletic Association school, and helped the Lakers to a 43-10 season finish, along with a fifth-place finish in the national championships.

According to Saluki Athletics, Glenn was named a 2011 NJCAA All-American and NJCAA Academic All-American. Glenn holds a .403 batting average with 54 hits, three doubles, four triples and 24 RBIs. After she graduated in 2010, Glenn’s high school career stats at

Mattoon High School were the top in the state. Glenn helped her high school team to three top-two finishes in sectionals with an overall record of 89-18. She held a .460 batting average her senior year, and she was named an All-State honorable mention, Decatur Herald & Review

All-Area honoree, Mizuno Super 60 team, and a three-time Big 12 AllConference selection. Glenn will make her first appearance in the fall of 2012.

business, it’s what we do,” he said. “We do what we need to do when the time comes.” Lowery said many of the team members formerly played high school football before switching to rugby. This can be an advantage to the players because of the similarities between the two games. “Football was based off of rugby,” he said. “You use a similar skill set, but there are also differences. Tackling is the same and there is kicking in both, but passing is different.” In rugby, forward passes are

illegal, whereas the forward pass is a pinnacle element of football. Marco Orozco, a freshman from Plainsfield studying business administration, said he only started playing for the SIU club rugby team this semester, but he was immediately drawn to the group because of the team’s welcoming character. “I’m new to the game; I’m a rookie,” he said. “I decided to play rugby because my older brother played at ISU. He told me that it was a great time and that I should try out, and ever since I’ve been loving

it. When I came for the first time, everyone was really friendly and it’s just a great atmosphere.” Lowery said the team always welcomes new players. “Anyone can make a good rugby player,” he said. “If a person is good enough to run, catch, pass and kick, they’re golden.” Orozco said anyone that enjoys a competitive atmosphere will enjoy the sport, but the true feel of the team can only be experienced by trying it out for yourself. “You’ll notice it right when you

get on the field,” he said. “They’ll welcome you with open arms, like they’ve known you for awhile. If you really want to see for yourself, you’ve got to come out. You’ll just fall in love right away.” The team’s last event of the season is during Alumni Weekend on May 5, where the current team will scrimmage its graduated former members.
